Hobo Spiders Living in both Europe and North America, hobo spiders are a species that prefers moderate climates, making their nests both in houses and outside, in gardens, hedges, fields and pastures. In the United States, hobo spiders are considered a real danger since their bite can cause severe necrosis; nevertheless, the reported cases are pretty rare, as the most likely symptoms to appear include local pain, itching and swelling of the bitten area. The huntsman spider is easy to be taken for a tarantula, but it is harmless to humans; it never bites unless provoked, and the wound is superficial and healing in just a couple of days. The size of the huntsman spider may seem impressive, as it has no less than three centimeters in leg-span. The legs of the huntsman spider are actually the characteristic element for the species: rather than having them attached vertically to the body, they are twisted, with a crab-like appearance. Not all spider bites are dangerous, since the majority of spider species are totally harmless for humans; with the exception of a few venomous ones, the rest are pretty safe. When a spider bites you, the first thing to do is trying to identify the species, if it be possible; knowing what type of spider bit you may be crucial in case an anti-venom has to be used. The shape of the web woven by the hobo spider is truly unique, it consists of a very dense silk sheet which is usually curved upwards so that insects that come from above the structure may fall into it. The hobo spider waits in a tubular retreat until the prey is tangled in the threads and only then it comes out and injects the insect with the paralyzing venom. Normally, a camel spider will not attack a human being, but if one gets accidentally bitten, the condition can become very painful indeed. However, the bite is not as serious as that of a tarantula for instance, since the camel spider has no venom to inject. The only venomous species variety grows in India and it is not such a real threat to humans at all; moreover, the camel spider will not attack a prey that is larger than itself, hence the myths and rumors are definitely far-fetched and unworthy of consideration. They need to accumulate some fat in order to be able to resist without food during the period when they have to guard the eggs. The easy way to distinguish between males and females is not just body size, but also the length of the articulated feet. One other peculiarity of the camel spiders consists in the presence of several pairs of eyes grouped on various body parts.
